Research Associate in High-Throughput Gene Expression

Research Associate in High-throughput Characterisation of Microbial Gene Expression.

In collaboration with the engineering consultancy Cambridge Consultants, we seek a PDRA for a short-term research contract. By exploiting automated experimental approaches we seek to develop a fuller understanding of the heuristics of predictive design and circuit stability for gene circuits implemented in a bacterial chassis. The development of the knowledge underpinning design rules and toolsets for the rapid and comprehensive, rapid and reliable definition of synthetic gene circuits will be of great value across academic and industrial synthetic biology. Educated to PhD level, you will have a deep knowledge of microbial synthetic biology, complemented by a thorough practical experience of integrated robotic construction and characterisation.

This post is full time and fixed-term for 5 months. The post is available from August 2018.

Salary: £32,548 - £38,833 per annum.
